What is meant to be…

“…will be”. I used to believe so whole-heartedly in these words. That what was meant for you, would always find its way to you. That things would always work out, that everything would go as planned, and all of your dreams would never be lost. Now, I’m not sure these words would ever cross my […]

A Hard Lesson
